their latest Top 100 Alt Search Engine list, which is eagarly anticipated every month. This month's list has 'gone global' - from now on there will always be 10 slots reserved for International Alts. This acknowledges that there are many good search engines out there that do not have English as their Äúfirst languageÄ? (although they may or may not have an English version), and are not headquartered in the USA or UK.Our sister site AltSearchEngines has just published
Dialogus is a new generation search engine that automatically searches for answers to questions. When you ask Dialogus a question, it processes it like any natural language (Semantic, Äúmeaning-based,Ä? Natural Language Processing (NLP), or Artificial Intelligence AI) search engine might, but it does it in plain view.Perhaps to celebrate the new international flavor of The List, ASE Editor Charles Knight has chosen a Russian search engine as this monthÄôs Search Engine of the Month.
As Charles says, Alts like Dialogus show us what Search can look like compared to a plain search box on a white page and a list of 10 results. Charles admits that most alts need to Äúcatch upÄ? to Google and the other major search engines on building their own index, plus their speed and relevancy/accuracy. But he says the Alts bring innovation and new, engaging user experiences to the search landscape - which I agree is a breath of fresh air.
